The Feeling of being Alive

By Diana Grace All Rights Reserved ©

Horror / Mystery

Alive

The night was warm as the young woman strode along the streets. Her flattened pink hair blocked some of the sight in her right eye but she sang happily to herself.

“It's the feeling of being alive! Filled with evil, but truly alive! It's the truth that cannot be denied! It's the feeling of Pinkamena Pie!”

She chuckled to herself, her sweet voice echoing through the empty streets. As she rounded the corner, she spotted a small outdoor cafe. The establishment was empty aside from a lone man and a waitress in a white dress and the man was leaving.

“What’s this?” the girl asked. “Oh sweetness...it’s fate, what bliss...sweetness...your folly will cost you dear, my dear…”

The man vanished around the corner, leaving the woman all alone, wiping the tables. There was not another soul in sight and the yellow light cast by the cafe flickered a little. The waitress stood straight, wiping her hands on her apron and it was then she noticed the long shadow at her feet. Her brown eyes followed the long, outstretched shape until she saw the pair of bare feet. Farther upwards the woman’s gaze travelled, taking in the ripped pink camo pants and loose pinkish-gray shirt and the long flat mane of pink hair. Then the waitress saw the face before her, pale and twisted into a sick smile, green eyes gleaming wickedly. Her pulse picked up and she started to back away, but the other girl continued to advance. The woman in white’s back hit the wall of the cafe and delicate hands were placed on either side of her head. Brown eyes, filled with terrified tears met mad green irises. As the girl leaned her head in even closer, drinking in the waitress’ expression.


The pink-haired young woman danced through the streets in the dark, laughing and singing loud as her lungs could manage.

“What a feeling to be so alive!I have never seen me so alive! Such a feeling of evil inside -That's the feeling of Pinkamena Pie! And this feeling of being alive, there's a new world I see come alive, It's a truth that cannot be denied There's no feeling like Pinkamena Pie!”

The girl collapsed to the ground in a fit of wild laughter, the sound like the screams of the woman she had left behind at the cafe, her dress no longer white.

The next morning, the girl sat up in her bed, stretching to the ceiling, wondering where the soreness in her muscles had come from. Her wild pink curls were all over the place and her blue eyes were droopy with sleep. She walked into the bathroom, took one look into the mirror and clapped her hands over her mouth. Her clothes were torn and stained brown, and the soreness in her muscles now made sense. She wouldn’t read the newspaper this morning; she already knew what would be in the news. Pinkamena Diane Pie had struck once again.

Jessica: This is a story that I could not stop reading. It is amazing how everything flowed together and what happened in this book is one that I would not have expected. Very talented author and a great read.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Erica Mifflin: is very very neat and is one of my favorite novel of all time I want more stories like this please write another one. I love it so much thank you for your stories it was like a good book to my heart and I want more stories like this

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless.

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm.
